Philosophy may sound dauntingly remote from our daily concerns, but its basic questions "What can I know? What may I hope? What must I do?" actually pose themselves throughout any thinking person's journey. And the skills it teaches — close reading, careful thinking, and the critique of ideas — apply to most areas of human endeavor. A background in philosophy is thus excellent training for many careers, and matchless preparation for life itself.

This degree will serve as a foundation for studies leading to a Ph.D. in Philosophy or prepare students for positions in industry, government, or college teaching.

Graduate students at The New School for Social Research ask the kind of questions that challenge the status quo across the social sciences and humanities.

Guided by rigorous scholarship and a desire to apply academic discourse and discovery to current social problems, they critically examine interdisciplinary fields to become a force of new knowledge and ideas in the world.

All graduate programs at The New School for Social research can be completed full-time or part-time on our New York City campus. Competitive merit-based scholarships are available in all departments -- in recent years, 85% of master’s students have received merit scholarships at The New School for Social Research.

Change begins with a question. What will you ask?

Program highlights

  • 30-credit MA, 60-credit PhD.
  • Study in a philosophy program developed by renowned scholars including Hannah Arendt, Hans Jonas, Aron Gurwitsch, and Reiner Schürmann.
  • Focus on the history of Western thought and the modern European philosophical tradition. Recent courses include Art and Mechanical Reproduction; Embodied Cognition; Kant’s Critique of Pure Reason; and Speech Acts.

Why the New School?

The New School for Social Research was founded in 1919 as a home for progressive thinkers, and housed the University in Exile in 1933, providing an academic haven for scholars persecuted in Nazi Europe. The school became the foundation for a comprehensive university – The New School – and continues the legacy of critical thought, civic engagement, and academic freedom today.
